Subject: RE: BS: Oslo Bombing and Shooting at Youth Camp
It's at times like this that we need to think carefully about what terrorism is all about. When terrorists brutally kill and maim people, those deaths and injuries are, to the terrorists 'merely incidental' and 'just' a means to an end (let me hasten to add that, to people like you and me, they are foul crimes). What the terrorists hope to achieve is a gross over-reaction and a de-stabilisation of a whole society. We should not forget that when Al-Quaeda attacked the USA in September 2001 they got just the reaction that they had been hoping for. Up to now the US Government has spent around $4 trillion (!) on two futile wars and this will impact severely on its future prospects as a world power.

Before pdq even knew who was responsible for the carnage in Norway he felt moved to write: "It appears that Islam does not recognize Norway's right to exist." Thus playing straight into Osama's dead hands! pdq you're an idiot!

I hope and pray that the people of Norway have more sense. I also extend to them my deepest sympathy at this dreadful point in their history.
